Great stuff, I am DLing now.

I was lucky enough to catch Jerry/John accoustic for 2 shows in 1 night at Mackey Aud on the CU campus in Boulder. The thing I really loved about it was how intimate it was. Mackey is an old style theater with a balcony and box seats to the side. It was such a treat to see Jerry sitting on a stool, with his Accoustic guitar with John to his right and a little behind him with his standup, it was so simple, no bells and whistles. The scene was so different than other Dead/JG shows in that the crowd was quiet, relaxed and respectful, there was no shouting out songs, everyone stayed seated and was focused on the music. I think everyone really appreciated how special it was and wanted to soak it up and savor every moment. It remains one of my top moments and fondest memories of Jerry
